“Stunning place and a wonderful location”
What can I say? There aren’t many places in this world where you could drop your bags and say “that’s it, I’m moving in”, but this is one of them. It’s beautifully and thoughtfully decorated.
Each of the rooms has its own decoration style, each is lovely. The main living room is gorgeous.
It’s very well equipped, especially the kitchen which has everything you might use at home.
It is situated near a brook in a very quiet area near Coniston water. Mostly you hear sheep and running water. If you want a remote “getaway spot”, this is it. No hustle and bustle of Windemere or Ambleside, quiet evenings under starlit skies.
On a side note, we found that Morrisons (and others) deliver, so we scheduled a food and wine delivery for shortly after our arrival, which took the pressure of bringing lots of food with us or shopping immediately on arrival. This really helped in settling in.
The location is good, it’s about 20 minutes to Windemere, and about the same to Ambleside. You can get to Buttermere in about 1hr 15 or so.
Simon (the host) was great to work with on the booking, super responsive and helpful, we will definitely be booking this or one of his other properties again.
All in all, I highly recommend – Chris Harvey
